My mom knit several wool soakers for my LO. I'm just wondering if there's any prep that needs to be done before using them (like, how you need to wash + dry CDs several times before use). They're already lanolized, and I know about repeating it when they lose their waterproof-ness. Is there anything else I need to know?

Thanks!

Sometimes they need to be felted just a tiny bit, especially in the crotch and bum, before they're at their best. You can do that by rinsing them in hot water and rubbing that area just a bit. It'll happen all on its own once baby is wearing them, and they'll still work fine without it, but you won't reach your maximum moisture-containing effect until they're felted a bit.
